Kevin McKidd as Sean Cassidy a.k.a. Banshee

Sean Cassidy is the heir to both a small fortune and a castle in Cassidy Keep, Ireland, where he was born. In his youth, he married Maeve Rourke and took a job with Interpol as an Inspector. Later, he left Interpol and became a freelance detective. The villainous Changeling discovered him through the group Factor Three and invited him to join the organization. Cassidy was appalled upon learning Factor Three's goals and adamantly refused. Factor Three, with the Ogre, captured him and placed a headband containing explosives around his head to force him to obey them. Codenamed after the banshee, a spirit from Irish mythology, Cassidy was forced to perform various criminal missions for Factor Three. On a mission in New York City, Banshee encountered the X-Men. Professor Charles Xavier used his telepathy to disarm the headband and remove it, allowing Banshee to help the X-Men defeat Factor Three.

Banshee's abilities include superhuman hearing, sonic screams, flight, concussive blasts, sonic energy lances and the ability to cause nausea, disorientation, or unconsciousness. He's also immune to powers the of Black Tom Cassidy.
